Groundbreaking Celebration: May 4, 11:00 am

Work has now started on our new library, and we’re ready to celebrate.  Come join us for the official kickoff, with brief comments from various speakers, photo ops and, of course, some ceremonial shovels in the ground. The Friends of the Library will provide light refreshments. In case of bad weather, we’ll meet across the street at the Empire Township Hall.

Stories & More for Preschoolers

Preschool children and their caregivers will enjoy these weekly sessions, every Thursday morning at 11:00 during the school year. Joanne “Yogi” Beare shares stories, music, rhymes, hands-on crafts and more, promoting early literacy and socialization skills. This is also a great way for families to discover all that the library has to offer. No advance registration is required for this free program, made possible by support from the Friends of the Glen Lake Library.

Tech Help Desk

If you need assistance with common computing, smartphone or tablet issues, contact the library for a referral to one of our volunteer tech tutors. They’re available to help you learn the many tools available on your device: email, text-messaging, camera and photos, clocks and calendars, notes and reminders, apps, and more. Our tutors can also help you learn to download electronic books and media from the library. However, please note that our tutors can’t provide technical support for hardware or software issues. If you’re interested in volunteering for this program,  please contact the library.

Lakeshore Readers book group

Our resident book group meets here in the library each month, typically on the last Wednesday, to share their insights and observations about the selected title. Their lively meetings are open to the public, with guests always welcome. A list of upcoming selections can be found on our calendar. Please note that the library generally owns only one copy of each selection. Additional copies can be ordered through MelCat or may be purchased from the Cottage Book Shop or other local booksellers.
